After creating a new RC1 Sitefinity project using the project manager tool, I access the project in Visual Studio 2005 Pro using File -> Open -> Web Site, as suggested by the v3.0 Dev manual.
When I compile the project without any modifications, there are build errors.
Admin\Templates\News\SingleNews.ascx was missing a closing asp:label tag on line 4.
I closed the tag properly and rebuilt... the compiler made it past the first issue but now returns 25 build errors in 3 files.
Additionally, I also noticed the source code for a number of aspx pages looks like it has already been parsed by a web server? I.e. The hidden input tags such as __VIEWSTATE are already present in the project files. All of the <%@ Page /Register tags are already parsed and all of the .net server control tags are already parsed and converted to divs, etc. etc.
One such example is Admin\Editor.aspx
The Sitefinity Project Manager also did not create any VS project or solution files as in previous versions. Is this by design??
